Geesh this company is pissing me the hell off.
Everything has been fine up until about 2 weeks ago. All of a sudden one morning, they don't pick up my garbage like they do with everybody else's and put a huge bright orange sticker on my garbage that basically says "WE AIN'T TAKING YOUR GARBAGE BECAUSE YOU ARE BEHIND ON YOUR BILL".
B.S. I'm thinking....I just got a bill and paid it like a week ago. I check inside and noticed I had received a new bill but just the night before. This new bill's due date isn't for at least another two weeks yet. There is no way I'm behind.
Holiday weekend now....I pay the bill online over weekend and next week proceed to put my garbage out again, thinking all should be good now.
They still don't take it. They didn't leave a note, but they didn't take it either. Now I'm pissed...so I take account info and phone number in to work with me (as they are closed by time I get home usually). I call and talk to a nice lady phone operator who looks up my account and it shows I'd never been behind and she can't fathom why they would have not taken my garbage. She asks if I want somebody sent out that day to pick up my garbage, but I say "no...I'm not home and its now out, and I can't get home to put it out". Then she says she'll put a notation on the account for the garbage men to apparently have to check something when they do my garbage and/or notate on their records WHY they didn't take my garbage if they did not (not sure if it was both or not).
So I go to put garbage out last night...had left can up by my garage and it was empty. Even though I told her not to send somebody, they must have anyway, because "somebody" took the garbage from my can (that was way up by my garage). Anyway...I take the garbage that I had put in garage into the can and put it out last night.
Today I get home with another bright green sticker telling me that my can is too big for regulation. Must be a 32 gallon can max. It's a 50 gallon can, but it just has a few closed/tied bags in it...not freeform 50 gallons of garbage. Well.....this is the same can they'd been taking garbage in FINE for 3 months since I moved in here. Apparently they were pissed about getting their hand slapped and having to call on the account, so plan to play everything by the letter. Trying to get even perhaps?
Well...I'm done. I'm calling in again tomorrow and telling them to shove their business up their wahzoo!! I'll switch to whatever that other company in area is. BFI I think.
Sorry for the book....thanks for letting me vent.
